My spiritual status
After 17 years in the comfort of my parents’ home, and then attending college close to home, I found myself moving across the country to start a new job and live among new people in a new community. The “Savanna” I had known my whole life was going to have to make some big-time adjustments!
I had left my family, my home, my local church, and my daily routines. It seemed as if no part of my life was the same anymore and everything was changing. This is when I knew I was ready to take a deep-dive through prayer to determine: “Spiritually, who am I? What is my highest selfhood, my spiritual status?” I knew from my study of Christian Science that what I am spiritually, as God’s reflection, would never change.
During my last few months of college, I’d started praying with and heavily relying on these three ideas: “I am untouched, unthreatened, and untempted.” I truly believe God sent me these angel messages to continue learning what I really was, as His child, and to prepare me for this fresh direction my life was taking. Together these ideas covered each and every challenge that came along. It’s been helpful to me to break them down and think about them individually.
